    Re: Iphone on Eastlink

    The only way to answer that question is to try it to see if it works. Based on the specs it should work because East link is claiming they have a 100% LTE network which the Canadian unlocked and ATT unlocked iPhone support.

    The iPhone doesn't support voice over LTE, and as far as I know neither do any Eastlink devices. They have HSPA as well and must be using that for calls.

    The iPhone 5 supports LTE on Eastlink but NOT the HSPA frequency. So if anything you might get data and SMS but no voice.

    On the other hand, the LTE iPad would be suited for Eastlink because you can't make phone calls anyway.

    Thanks Guys for the info. I would think that Eastlink would be losing a lot of business if their network doesn't support Iphones. Most folks around here that I know are Iphone users. Thanks,Dave

    Eastlink has no choice in the matter.

    Apple Canada is now selling the iPhone 5 with updated bands (thanks to T-Mobile) so it should be ok for Eastlink.

    I wonder if anyone has tried to use an LTE iPad on EastLink? It won't be able to register with the HSPA network but it'll find the LTE. And since nobody uses iPad for voice/text anyway, that should be all it needs.
